Stepping into the world of a grieving child or adolescent offers a unique opportunity to touch a life and transform grief into healing and health. Theoretical concepts, including the role resiliency plays in the healing process for children, as well as developmental distinctions of childhood grief are presented. Participants will practice experiential methods of play and creativity which foster a healthy and age-appropriate grieving process, leading to a child’s ability to more fully express their feelings of loss and associated fears. (20 contact hours toward the CMH Certificate.)
